. franklin roosevelt took the oath four times and bit of a fluke for a president who is limited to two terms to take it four times. that is what happens when you have it last time and repeat it and, of course, we had january 20th fall on sunday which is private ceremony today. >> eric: you have written about the resolution and founding fathers. what do you think they would say if they came back and turn the tv and watched what is going to happen tomorrow? >> i think they would be thrilled that so many american people can watch the peaceful transfer of power under the u.s. constitution. that is really what an inauguration is all about. >> eric: george washington wore ra brown suited and white silk stockings, and he had a sword. can you imagine if the president came out with a sword? and it was the same sense of history and love of our country that has continued through all these years? >> yes, the love of country and patriotism, things are different but obviously washington's first inaugural was in new york. we now have the capitol in washington, d.c. it used to be inside but becaus

your country, or franklin roosevelt, we have nothing to fear but fear itself. or abraham lincoln, with malice towards none in the civil war. it's almost as much the moment, the point we are in history and a president who rises to that moment, unites americans, touches the common spirit, as it is the skill of all my friends who are speech writers coming up with those memorable words. >> arthel: if it's that idea of touching our collective soul and make the best of the moment, as you would say is the best use of an inaugural speech, what do you think the american people want to hear in president obama's second inaugural speech on monday? >> you know, if you think back four years ago, the country was full of hope. it was a real celebration. it was an historic moment. we were maturitying our first african-american president. there was a sense that they were on the verge of a great time of hope. things are definitely different now. we've got a divided country. it's a less historic moment. we got a lot of folks still looking for jobs and can't find them. we've got partisan politics and a par

to get tough after that statement, isn't it? >> you know, franklin roosevelt along with the rest of the country had a pretty bad day on december 7, 1941. but the next day he went to congress and asked for a declaration of war. you want to be in a leadership position in senior positions in the united states government, you've got to stand up under difficult circumstances. susan rice wrote an op-ed for "the washington post" saying she was picked to go on to five sunday talk shows because mrs. clinton had a grueling week because of the attack. as i say, franklin roosevelt had a pretty grueling week too. but if you're not up to being able to handle the responsibilities, that says something too. >>brian: about whether you can be an effective president or not. al qaeda on the rise, on the run. we've decimated al qaeda. we've heard it all. in reality, they're all over north africa, coming back in iraq and their presence is seen in afghanistan. what is the message? >> well, i think one message is president obama doesn't get it. i was absolutely stunned in his inaugural address -- stunned to

hardball with you. >> megyn: the national journal has a good piece, talking how your dad, franklin roosevelt, bill clinton, to name a few, masters at building relationships to further their political aim. and president obama doesn't want to deal with those who don't like him, but not goods politics to antagonize them and gland-hand with them. >> look at bill clinton, newt gingrich, ronald reagan and speaker of the house tip o'neill, they're able to do it if they're willing to do it. you have a president who is unwilling to do it and holds a press conference just to make things worse, not to reach out, but taking a paddle to the republicans, blaming them as if they're passing budgets, and in the senate they refuse to pass. >> megyn: michael, thank you. up next, a terrifying ordeal for a woman trapped in her submerged car for 18 frigid hours. ♪ i wish my patients could see what i see. ♪ that over time, having high cholesterol and any of these risk factors can put them at increased risk for plaque buildup inheir arteries. so it's even more important to lower their cholesterol, and

. even franklin roosevelt who seemed to be able to do no wrong in his first term badly stumbled in his second term. history says that president obama has like 16 to 18 months and he will really need the other side. can he turn the nation around? i don't think he can in the way he did in the speech and i think he will find that very quickly he will need the republicans, who were sort of left out, who got sort of hidden bystanders of this speech today. >> i want to ask you that. you reference the idea of jefferson complaining about the press and ulysses grant complaining about the reporters as well. the partisan tone of this speech, i mean, there weren't a lot of a attacks, but in a sense it was pretty partisan and wasn't a lot for the other side. is that unusual in an inaugural address? >> i think it is a little bit unusual and i think charles put it it adequately when he said that this is kind of a clarion call that barack obama is sending out and what we are probably seeing is the the most unvarnished barack obama that we've seen since he's been president. so, i was really struck by t
